New Releases Roundup 6/4/13: Queens of the Stone Age, Quadron, Camera Obscura
This week in the AllMusic New Releases Roundup, the Queens of the Stone Age, Quadron, and Camera Obscura return with some of their best work yet.
This week in the AllMusic New Releases Roundup, the featured bands return with some of their best work yet.
First, Queens of the Stone Age are back in top form with their latest, Like Clockwork. Reunited with Dave Grohl and Nick Oliveri, the band rock harder and sound catchier than they have in a decade.
On the poppier side, check out Camera Obscura's fifth album, Desire Lines. The Scottish indie heroes along with new producer Tucker Martine bring renewed energy and confidence to their latest, propelled by strings and percussion surprises.
Or if you're craving some electronic beats, give Quadron's new one, Avalanche, a spin. Though the Danish pair are doing it less softly than on their quietly stunning debut, they're still killing it. For more on these and other new releases, click over to AllMusic dot com!

What do you get when you mash up the album titles in this week's AllMusic New Releases Roundup? A song about a magnetic eagle. Trust us!
Singer/songwriter John Fogerty gets a little help from his friends on his latest album, Wrote a Song for Everyone. Guests like Bob Seger, My Morning Jacket and Miranda Lambert join Fogerty on excursions through rock and country with dashes of R&B and alternative folk.
Speaking of alt-folk, Laura Marling channels Los Angeles circa 1969 with her fourth outing, Once I Was an Eagle. Recorded in just ten days, the album finds Marling shedding her backing band for a more intimate, stripped down affair that shows off her vocal and musical confidence.
And jazz fans, check out trumpeter Terence Blanchard's return to Blue Note, Magnetic. Brimming with enthusiasm, imagination and sophistication, Blanchard and the band are firing on all cylinders. For more on these and other new releases, click over to AllMusic dot com!

Spring has sprung at AllMusic H-Q, and we're soaking up the sun to the sound of some great new releases!
Easing from colder temperatures to balmier days, there's Trouble Will Find Me, the latest from The National. Once again the Brooklyn indie rockers are warm, wistful and weary, captivating listeners with their emotive songwriting.
Then it's time to hit the dancefloor, where Daft Punk are laying down the beats. The '70s and '80s influenced Random Access Memories pairs the French duo with music legends like Nile Rodgers and Giorgio Moroder to make their sounds live rather than use samples.
Finally, for something old and something new, check out Saturday Looks Good to Me. They may not be household names, but if you like the Beach Boys, Motown groups, or Belle & Sebastian, the inventive, summery pop of their new record, One Kiss Ends It All, will make you smile.

Michigan proto-punk legends the Stooges are back with their fifth studio album, Ready to Die. Where their 2007 comeback, The Weirdness, was just that, with Ready to Die the band gets back on track, sounding as bratty, raw and loud as they did 45 years ago.

New Releases Roundup 4/23/13: Phoenix, Steve Martin & Edie Brickell, Snoop Lion Debut New Music!
What's new in music this week? Phoenix offers their latest, Steve Martin pairs up with Edie Brickell, and Snoop Lion makes his reggae debut.
How do you go from Bankrupt to Reincarnated? Find out in this week's AllMusic New Releases Roundup.
French electro rockers Phoenix follow up on their hugely successful Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix with Bankrupt!. Contrary to the empty-sounding title, the quartet are confident and comfortable as they blend their thick melodies and poppy hooks with more experimental sounds.
On the gentler side, Steve Martin reminds us that music is no joke with his latest album, Love Has Come for You. Martin's easy-rolling banjo pairs with Edie Brickell's earthy, relaxed vocals, and the result is a gentle album that's more graceful and revealing with each listen.
And rounding out the roundup, Snoop Dogg has a new answer to "What's My Name", shifting his musical gears to reggae and changing his name to Snoop Lion. His first effort for the reggae realm,Reincarnated, shows some fire and lots of heart, and features guests like Drake and Rita Ora.

On the other end of the rock spectrum, The Flaming Lips offer their first album of original material since 2009 with The Terror. While a lot of the band's work is filled with a sense of wonder and glee, their latest album is their darkest yet, filled with spacey, bleak sounds and philosophical lyrics.
And out in the cosmos, Diplo puts on his digital reggae/dancehall hat for Major Lazer's second album, Free the Universe. With Diplo's Lazer partner Switch out of the mix this time, Free the Universe gets a fresh party vibe thanks to guests Shaggy, Bruno Mars and Vampire Weekend-er Ezra Koenig.
